Wisdom of Spiritual Masters
EVENTS THAT OPEN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS
They say truth is liberating, and It will free us from the tensions, suspicions, and doubts. so we can live trusting fellow humans and live our lives in peace. Finding the truth is one’s own responsibility, it brings Mukti, Moksha, Nirvana, Salvation or Nijaat in its form. and finding the truth is one’s own responsibility.
How often have we caught ourselves in our bias towards others, be it conscious or unconscious? Instead of dismantling it, we keep piling on more of it creating a deeper chasm between us and the others.
As a process of ‘knowing each other’ to mitigate conflicts and nurture goodwill, we have added many programs to our list of established programs at the Center for Pluralism, that serve to remove myths about others.
This program, the “Wisdom of the Spiritual Masters” is about celebrating the birth of major personalities through-out the year. We will talk about their contributions to making the world a better place. It was these founders, their lives and messages, that reflected their commitment in building cohesive societies.
This was a part of our Radio show in the late nineties and we are resurrecting it now.
The following individuals have contributed significantly to make the world a better place. Depending on the availability of funds and time, we will hold small gatherings to hear about them from those who have learned about them. The least we will do is write a tribute about them and share it on our website, also possibly on Huffington Post and other newspapers.
We plan on presenting the material about each one of the personalities below to our esteemed Pastors, Pundits, Rabbis, Imams, Gyanijis, and clergy from different faith traditions, and ask them to find an act, a story about each one of them that contributed to the well being of all humanity. We believe, the message of these individuals is universal and goes in building cohesive societies where each individual feels secure about his/her ethnicity, faith, culture, race or any other uniqueness.

So many great souls have enriched humanity in so many different ways. The idea is to create awareness. They are fountainheads of major religions and civic movements in the world who left a deep impact on the structure of the societies for eternity.
The program is inclusive, hence, for example during the presentation of Jesus, we would welcome 3 minutes of comments from Mormons, Jehovah’s Witness and other wisemen.
We are an all-inclusive organization. If you know someone else who should be honored we welcome your sponsorship and lead in organizing an event.
